WhatsApp recently introduced stickers into their app, but sticker packs have to come in the form of apps. Creating a pack based on their iOS sample app will be rejected on the App Store.

This developer has averted the ban by making the pack to be iMessage first, but with an additional button to copy the stickers as a WhatsApp sticker pack:

I need to create a pack of 30 stickers, and I would like a boilerplate Xcode project to do exactly this.

Looking for Android version also?

Can I get the sticker pack so I can get a rough sense of the UI to be made (or am I missing something)? (To comply with Apple App Store's guidelines when creating an iOS sticker app, make sure to develop a unique user interface (UI) with your own styling and don't use our sample apps' UI)

Even if you can get it done, it might get banned later. Save yourself some time, and increase your chances of getting a clean/cleaner record. I just made a sticker app for one of my own apps, it would be nice to publish it, but I'm not going to. I don't think an iMessage sticker app will make any difference (even though Apple tells you how to publish a sticker pack for iMessage).
